Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update any file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. 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 perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers which we supply are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content through a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. This way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you select during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you can change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options and also any web content which you generate or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System that you have selected throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you can pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
