Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change every file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
When you purchase a virtual private servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, however you will also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice if you need to run any software which you can't set up in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on your hosting server, however, the root access privileges are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of the dedicated servers hosting packages
which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You'll be able to order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control of your server. The significant amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to take care of, yet the root access to such a server will be restricted.
