How Does Full Root Access with VPS Work?

By Peter Barker Subscribe to RSS | August 6th 2012 | Views:

Using a virtual private server (VPS) has many benefits over other types of web hosting, mostly shared, and one of those benefits is the fact that you’ll have full root access to your server. But what is full root access, and why is it important that you have it for your server?

Whether you need full root access will depend on what kind of website you have, and what you’re using it for. If you only need a server for your own personal website, then you most likely won’t need full root access to the server. However, if you’re running a website for any type of business at all, you will need to make sure that you have full root access, and that you have the right kind of server that will allow you to have it.

Full root access is not permissible on shared servers, because many websites will be located on that server; and you do not have the authority to change anything else for those websites. However, with just about any other type of server, you will have full root access. But just what does that mean?

Having full root access means that you can personally log into the server, make changes, and customize it the way you want. Is there different software that you want on your server? Are there more applications you want to add? Do you want to change the existing software you have? When you have full root access, you can do all of it. Whatever you want to change, you have the full authority and the full power to do so.

When signing up for web hosting, many people think that they can’t have full root access with VPS because their website is on the same server as many other websites. This is true, and is the reason why you can’t have full root access when you’re using a shared server. However, a VPS is one server that’s virtually separated into many servers. Because of this, what you do to your website has absolutely no effect on any other website, even if they’re located on the same VPS. And it’s because of this that when you sign up for VPS you can have your own login password and username, and be able to do whatever you want to your own virtual server.

There are many benefits that you’ll derive from using a VPS for running your website. Bridging the gap between shared hosting and dedicated hosting is one of them, and having full control is another. Being granted full root access is how you get that control, and how you can make the changes that you need. Stop being satisfied with a server that you share with others, and that you don’t have any control over whatsoever. Your business deserves more, and signing up for a virtual private server that gives you full root access is the best way to make sure it gets what it deserves!
