Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software which can change particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You may also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, 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 with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
When you get a virtual private servers from us, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, however you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your online content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice in case you want to run any kind of software that you are unable to install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, yet the root access privileges are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you get one of the dedicated web hosting which we provide, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You will be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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 will have full control of your server. The considerable amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, but the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
