When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven app that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
The Linux VPS
which we supply are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications that may be required by your web sites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. 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 custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. Thus, you can select the virtual server plan that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of the dedicated hosting
which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You'll be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, 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 three cases, you will have complete control of the machine. The significant amount of system resources which you'll get makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to manage, yet the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
