When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things as well as to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated servers
that we offer, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do using a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You may order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything with 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 take care of your web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control over the server. The considerable amount of system resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to manage, but the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
