When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you can install any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
When you buy a virtual private servers
from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to update any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, yet you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice if you want to run any kind of software that you can not set up in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on your server, yet the root access privileges are more restricted.
