If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers feature different levels of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you buy a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can take care of everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the dedicated servers that we provide, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything from 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 control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over the machine. The huge amount of resources that you will have makes our dedicated packages a great choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
