Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software that can modify specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you want. You can also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, 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 through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to control your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package which you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be controlled through an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything using a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of hosting perfect for any app 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, etc. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet 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 hosting services which we offer, you will 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 update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You may order the server with no website hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up 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 sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control of your server. The huge amount of resources which you'll have makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, yet the root access to such a server will be restricted.
