Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software that can change particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you'd like. You can also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
If you order a virtual private servers
from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, however you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to take care of your world wide web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you need to run any kind of software that you are unable to set up in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on the server, however, the root access privileges will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
which we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You can order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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 full control of the server. The tremendous amount of resources which you will get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, however the root access to such a server is limited.
