If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things and to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS come with different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you buy a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can take care of everything from a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you get your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of the Linux dedicated hosting that we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do using a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You may order the server with no 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 take care of your web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control over the machine. The considerable amount of system resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to take care of, yet the root access to such a server is restricted.
