If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you will be able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using 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 need to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled through an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas 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 will have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system or custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You'll be able to order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control over the server. The considerable amount of system resources which you'll get makes our dedicated plans 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 simpler to manage, yet the root access to such a server is limited.
