Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize any kind of file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from almost any location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting plans
feature different degrees of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you obtain your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you'll select during the signup process. The very same is valid if you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your site content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with limited root access.
