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

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to control your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've picked, 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 lot of system settings can be managed through an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to do everything using a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this kind of hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You may order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control of the server. The considerable amount of system resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to manage, still the root access to such a server will be restricted.
