If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control over 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 your server, and you can both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software that may be required by a 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 offer, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You will be able to order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything through 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 web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over the machine. The significant amount of system resources that you will get makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to maintain, but the root access to such a server is restricted.
