When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you're 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 the aforementioned things and also to generate 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's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You are 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 website hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed through an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to make everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you get one of the dedicated web hosting which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do using a shared hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything from 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 take care of your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of the server. The considerable amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any kind of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to maintain, still the root access to such a server will be restricted.
