Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize any file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to function appropriately. 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 may also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers include different degrees of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you purchase a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your online content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you order the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will select during the registration process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
