When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to modify 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
You will be able to control your new VPS servers
at the root level whatever the package which you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed from an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to make everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any system and / or custom content on it all the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated service
which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You will be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control over the server. The huge amount of system resources which you will get makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to maintain, however the root access to such a machine will be limited.
