If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done 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 who also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize 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 Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do with a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You'll be able to order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control of your server. The significant amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated plans the perfect choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, still the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
