Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software that can update particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you'd like. You may also make additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You'll be able to control your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package which you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled from a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to make everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system or custom content on it at all times, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated servers which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do using a shared hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control of the server. The considerable amount of resources that you will get makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to manage, still the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
