Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can change certain settings on your server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You may also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the dedicated servers that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do using a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You may order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument, 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 full control of the server. The considerable amount of system resources which you'll have makes our dedicated plans the perfect choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to take care of, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
