Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify each file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for daily 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 existing location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you buy a VPS servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, still you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your world wide web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you wish to run any kind of software which you cannot set up in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, however, the root access privileges will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
