When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to 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 who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a different 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 needed by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated servers
which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You will be able to order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of the machine. The huge amount of system resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to manage, still the root access to such a machine will be limited.
