Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update every file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned things. The root user may also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access function gives you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
If you order a virtual private servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to update any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make changes, still you will also have a graphical interface available to control your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you would like to run any software which you cannot install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, but the root access rights will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting
which we offer, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You may order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything from 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 web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control of the server. The considerable amount of resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to take care of, yet the root access to such a machine will be limited.
