Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize any file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages
feature different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything from a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are related to your web content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our plans you will choose during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
