Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize any file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting
that we provide are suitable for various different purposes, depending on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your online content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. This way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
whatever the package you select throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options as well as any web content which you create or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option which you are able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
