Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify every file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our VPS hosting services
include different levels of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you obtain a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything using a console, unless you install some third-party tool. 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 linked to your world-wide web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install various 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, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at registration. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
