Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change every file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify each part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, however you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your online content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you want to run any kind of software that you can't set up in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on your server, yet the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you will still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
