Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software that can modify certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you'd like. You may also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can change each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to control your world wide web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice if you want to run any software which you can not set up in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on your hosting server, however, the root access privileges will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the Linux dedicated service
which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server without web hosting Control Panel and do everything through 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 manage your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control over the server. The tremendous amount of resources which you will receive makes our dedicated plans a great 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 control, still the root access to such a server will be restricted.
