Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify every file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. The root user can also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control over your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS plans
include different levels of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you purchase a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll 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 website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are related to your online content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get your virtual 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 simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you select 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 packages you will select during the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
