Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software which can modify certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be done 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 at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You may also create various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
When you obtain a virtual private servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can update each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, yet you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you wish to run any software which you can't set up in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on your hosting server, yet the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of the dedicated servers hosting
that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You can order the server without web hosting Control Panel and do everything with 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 3 cases, you'll have full control of the machine. The huge amount of resources which you will get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, but the root access to such a server will be restricted.
