If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and also to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
You are able to control your new virtual private 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 website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be managed via an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything using a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system or custom content on it all of the time, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any application which you can't 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 last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting
that we offer, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You can order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control over the server. The significant amount of system resources which you will get makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, yet the root access to such a server is restricted.
