Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change any file on a particular server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the hosting server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting plans
which we offer are suitable for a variety of purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications which may be required by your web sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. This way, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated servers
that we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You will be able to order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you install a 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 will have full control of your machine. The significant amount of resources that you'll get makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any kind of content that you'd like 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 will be restricted.
