Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update every file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to take care of your web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice when you need to run any kind of software which you cannot set up in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on your server, but the root access privileges are more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans
which we offer, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared web hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You will be able to order the server with no website hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, 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 the server. The considerable amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, however the root access to such a server will be limited.
