Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize each file on a particular server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up 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 via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control over your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS packages feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your web content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you get your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of a variety of server-side options and any website content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you have selected throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option that you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
