Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software which can update particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned 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 would like. You may also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You will be able to take care of 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, many system settings can be controlled through an intuitive web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything via a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any system or custom content on it at all times, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated servers which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You can 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 manage your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control of your machine. The tremendous amount of resources which you will receive makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to maintain, still the root access to such a server will be limited.
