Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software that can change certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you want. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You'll be able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the package that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled through an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you'll have to make everything using a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and custom content on it all of the time, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application which you cannot 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 alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You will be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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 web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control over your server. The tremendous amount of resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, but the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
