Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update any file on a selected server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for everyday 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 function will give you full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting services
which we provide are appropriate for various purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. If 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 take care of your Internet content using a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you can choose the virtual server package which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
regardless of what plan you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The 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 site content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will 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 last Control Panel option that you are able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
