Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you need. You can also generate other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You will be able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed through an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this kind of hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You can order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything from 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 manage your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control of your machine. The tremendous amount of system resources that you will have makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to maintain, still the root access to such a server will be restricted.
