When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and also to create other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate 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 required by a script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our VPS hosting come with different levels of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll control everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. 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 online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you select throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you will be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages suitable for multi-media apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of a variety of server-side options as well as any website content which you create or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System that you've selected during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you'll be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
