When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and also to create other users, which includes users that 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 create a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to change any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, yet you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you need to run any software that you can't install in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to perform lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
