When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates 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'll make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans
that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do with a shared web hosting account - to change 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 website hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control over the machine. The considerable amount of system resources which you will receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, still the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
