Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software which can modify particular settings on the 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, i.e. you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You may also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do via 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 control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting that we provide are appropriate for different purposes, depending on what you would like to install and run on them and what experience you have. If your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications which may be needed for your web sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. That way, you can choose the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control over your machine. The significant amount of system resources that you will have makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, still the root access to such a machine is restricted.
