Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can modify certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You can also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with 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
which we offer, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do using a shared hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You'll be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control over your machine. The significant amount of resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, however the root access to such a server is limited.
