If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you're able to both access and modify any file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting packages
feature different levels of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you buy a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything using a console, unless you install a third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are related to your world-wide web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
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 update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You'll be able to order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control over your server. The significant amount of system resources which you'll have makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, still the root access to such a machine is limited.
