When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You're able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to do everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system and custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you get one of the Linux dedicated hosting that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do using a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You will be able to order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of the machine. The tremendous amount of system resources which you will receive makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to maintain, however the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
