Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software that can update certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you need. You may also make various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
If you get a virtual private servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to update each part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, but you will also have a graphical interface available to control your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice if you need to run any software that you are unable to set up in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on your server, however, the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated hosting
which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website 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 any web hosting Control Panel and do everything from 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 sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control over the machine. The significant amount of system resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to manage, but the root access to such a server is restricted.
