If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and change any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to control your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan which you have 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 lot of system settings can be managed through an intuitive web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything via a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS plus any system and custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we provide, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument, 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 three cases, you'll have full control of your server. The huge amount of system resources which you will receive makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, however the root access to such a machine is limited.
