Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software which can change particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you are 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 can do anything you want. You can also create additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. 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 using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You will be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the plan which you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled through an intuitive web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to make everything via a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You'll be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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 web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have full control over your machine. The huge amount of resources which you will have makes our dedicated plans the perfect choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, but the root access to such a machine will be limited.
