Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize every file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for day-to-day 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 will give you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting come with different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you buy a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will manage everything using a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things which are related to your web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you order the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you pick throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you are able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options as well as any website content which you create or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you are able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
