Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also install software which can update specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you need. You may also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, 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 you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You're able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan that you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need 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 and any kind of system and custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You will be able to order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over the server. The significant amount of resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to maintain, but the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
