If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you'll be able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS hosting service
feature different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you buy a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can take care of everything using a console, unless you install a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things which are related to your online content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you order your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated service
that we provide, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others.

In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control over the server. The huge amount of resources that you will get makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any type of content that you wish to have.
