When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can install any server-side app regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting services come with different levels of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will manage everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things which are related to your web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you get your 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 limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick during the signup process. The same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your website content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
