Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also set up software that can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting packages
which we provide are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. That way, you can pick the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of the dedicated servers hosting packages
that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything through 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 sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of your machine. The considerable amount of system resources that you will have makes our dedicated plans a fantastic 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 take care of, still the root access to such a machine is restricted.
