Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and modify every file on a particular server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS web hosting service come with different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you obtain a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can manage everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your online content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you can change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options as well as any web content that you generate or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the OS that you have selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you'll be able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
