Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software that can modify particular settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You can also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done 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
You are able to manage your new virtual private servers
at the root level regardless of 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, a number of system settings can be controlled from an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to make everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
When you get one of the dedicated servers hosting packages
that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do using a shared web hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You can order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything through 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 manage your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control of the server. The significant amount of system resources that you'll get makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, still the root access to such a server will be restricted.
