If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things as well as to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven application that you want 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 can do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You can order the server without web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of the machine. The huge amount of resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to manage, yet the root access to such a server will be restricted.
