If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you will be able to both access and update any kind of 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 perform the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS hosting plans which we offer are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps that may be needed for your web sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do with a shared web hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You'll be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control of your machine. The huge amount of system resources which you'll get makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, however the root access to such a server is restricted.
