Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize every file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting services
which we offer are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you'll select during the registration process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't 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 through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your website content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
