When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our VPS web hosting feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you acquire a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can take care of everything using a console, unless you install some third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things which are related to your world-wide web content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will select during the signup process. The same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
