Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software that can change specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you want. You may also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You'll be able to manage your new VPS servers
at the root level whatever the plan which you have picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed through an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything using a console, unless you decide to install 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 of the time, that makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated servers
which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything from 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 control your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control of the server. The tremendous amount of system resources that you will get makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, however the root access to such a server will be restricted.
