Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize each file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting packages come with different degrees 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'll need the server for. When you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll control everything from a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things that are linked to your web content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because 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 through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your website content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
