When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to update any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make changes, but you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you want to run any kind of software that you are unable to install in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, however, the root access rights are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated servers which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You may order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, 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'll have full control of the machine. The considerable amount of system resources that you'll have makes our dedicated packages a great choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to manage, yet the root access to such a server will be restricted.
