Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change each file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. Your root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control over your server from any existing location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you obtain a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll pick throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
