If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and update any file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no web hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify each part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, but you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your online content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice when you want to run any software that you are unable to install in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on your server, yet the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting package, our servers will be the perfect solution.
