Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify every file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. The 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 perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
come with different levels of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you purchase a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will control everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things which are linked to your web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You can install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may 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 Servers
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the signup process. The same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your website content will be managed through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
