Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize any file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. Your root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our VPS include different levels of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll control everything from a console, unless you install some third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are related to your web content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You're 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, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you select during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans suitable for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options and any website content which you generate or upload, while when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen throughout the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you are able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
