When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you'll be able to both access and update any file, including 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 all these things and also to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting packages
that we provide are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content via a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps which may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. Thus, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You may order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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 websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control over the machine. The considerable amount of resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, yet the root access to such a server is restricted.
