If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you'll be able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to generate other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no website hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you need to run any kind of software that you are unable to install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, yet the root access rights will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers are the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
