If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things and also to generate other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to take care of your new virtual private 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 without Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be managed from an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS as well as any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
