Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change each 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 required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned things. Your root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our VPS hosting
feature different degrees of access, in order 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 devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you order your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you will pick throughout the signup process. The same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content will be managed via a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with limited root access.
