Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also create other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans include different levels of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll manage everything using a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your 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 a problem. When 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 reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will select during the registration process. The very same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with limited root access.
