When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you can install any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your online content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you order your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.
