Having full root-level access means that you can access and update each file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
include different levels of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can manage everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated servers
which we offer, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do with a shared hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You can order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of your server. The considerable amount of resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to maintain, still the root access to such a machine is restricted.
