Having full root-level access means that you can access and modify any file on a particular server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control over your server from any existing location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you obtain your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, however you will still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
