Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software which can update particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You will be able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package which you have picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be managed from a user-friendly web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you get one of the dedicated hosting that we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You may order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up some 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 complete control of your machine. The significant amount of system resources which you'll get makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to manage, but the root access to such a machine is limited.
