If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and change any kind of 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 perform all these things as well as to generate other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven app that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting
that we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared web hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You will be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control of your machine. The tremendous amount of system resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent 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, yet the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
