When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you'll be able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

When you order a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to change any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your online content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice if you wish to run any software that you can not install in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on your server, yet the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web 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 cannot do with a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You can order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have full control of your machine. The huge amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to maintain, but the root access to such a server is limited.
