Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize each file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting feature different levels of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, but most of the things which are related to your web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you get your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, however you'll still be able to perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
