Full Root-level Access
Discover what exactly ‘full root-level access’ indicates, what benefits it will give you and how to utilize them to customize your server.
Having full root-level access means that you can access and change any kind of file on a particular server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate various other users. For safety 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 do some task on your hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting
include different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you buy 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 a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are related to your web content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you order the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you'll pick during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with 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 will get a server with limited root access.
