Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also set up software which can update certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you want. You may also make various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You will be able to control your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be controlled from an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to do everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system and custom content on it all the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control numerous server-side options and also any web content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the OS that you've selected during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option which you will be able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
