Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and customize every file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. The root user can also generate various 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 your server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting
include 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 need the server for. If you buy a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll manage everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at signup. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
