Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. The root user can also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS plans
include different degrees of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you get a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you obtain the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
