Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software which can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you want. You may also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day 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 that you can do via other accounts. You can 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 Web Hosting

If you buy a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change each part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice in case you want to run any software that you can not set up in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by using SSH and to control the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more restricted.

When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You will be able to order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control over your server. The tremendous amount of system resources which you'll get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, yet the root access to such a server is limited.
