Having full root-level access means that you can access and change any kind of file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
feature different levels of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you buy a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything through a console, unless you install some third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your online content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you obtain your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you will pick throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your web content will be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
