Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software that can update specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you'd like. You may also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You can order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control of the machine. The tremendous amount of system resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated plans 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 easier to take care of, however the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
