If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you'll be able to both access and modify 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 perform all these things and to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our VPS web hosting include different levels 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 need the server for. If you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you obtain the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you'll be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control a variety of server-side options and any web content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System that you've selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you will be able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
