If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and also to create 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 security reasons, it is recommended that you make a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, still you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice in case you need to run any software which you can not install in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on your server, but the root access privileges will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated servers which we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You'll be able to order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control over the machine. The considerable amount of system resources which you will receive makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, but the root access to such a machine is restricted.
