Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You may also set up software which can modify certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you would like. You can also generate additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You can take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be managed from an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to make everything via a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system and custom content on it all of the time, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of the dedicated hosting services that we provide, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You will be able to order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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 take care of your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over your machine. The considerable amount of system resources that you will get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to take care of, still the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
