When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You can control your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package that you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed via an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to do everything via a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting which we offer, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install 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 will have full control over your machine. The tremendous amount of system resources which you will have makes our dedicated plans the perfect choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, however the root access to such a machine will be limited.
