If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you'll be able to both access and modify any file, including 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 the aforementioned things and to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software that may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You'll be able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package that you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be managed from an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to make everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server without any 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 take care of your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control of the server. The tremendous amount of system resources which you will have 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 machine will be restricted.
