Posted October 18, 2018

Finding a web host that offers complete root access in its VPS plans can be a difficult task. Most claim uninterrupted root access, but never actually provide it.

You can keep track of server statistics and even make real-time changes to your resources. The web host also allows you to backup the VPS container and restore it as and when required.

What is Root Access?

When you sign-up for a VPS plan with Hostinger, you will get root user access to your virtual server. This is the highest level of access to the settings, files, and logs on your server. In other terms, you will be the administrator of you server. You can install server wide applications, edit any file, and configure all applications on the server. Root permissions allow you to manage your virtual server in any way you want.

It allows you to install one of dozens of Linux-based OS based on your needs and preferences. Another advantage is that you can scale your server vertically or horizontally by making the changes to your resource limits.
