Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update every file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. Your root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers
come with different levels of access, so as 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. If you get a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll control everything from a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are related to your web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you order your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you'll choose during the signup process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your website content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with limited root access.
