Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software that can change specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you'd like. You may also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting
come with different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you get a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you order the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting
which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You will be able to order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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'll have full control of the machine. The considerable amount of resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated plans 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, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
