Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update each file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS servers
from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, still you will also have a graphical interface accessible to manage your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you need to run any software which you can't set up in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to control the content on your server, yet the root access privileges are more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we offer features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you will still be able to do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
