If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you can both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You'll be able to control your new VPS servers
at the root level regardless of the plan which you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to do everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS and any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans
that we provide, 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 change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You will be able to order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, 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 full control over your server. The tremendous amount of resources that you will have makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, but the root access to such a server will be restricted.
