Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also set up software that can change specific settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are 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 can perform anything you need. You can also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is 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 to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS servers
from us, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can update any part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, still you'll also have a graphical interface available to take care of your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you wish to run any kind of software which you can't install in a standard shared web 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 your hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more 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 will be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You'll be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything through 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 web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control of the server. The significant amount of resources that you will get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to take care of, but the root access to such a server will be limited.
