If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things as well as to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS hosting service
that we supply are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. That way, you can choose the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated service
which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You will be able to order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool, 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 three cases, you will have full control over the server. The huge amount of system resources which you'll have makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, yet the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
