Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a selected server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our VPS web hosting packages feature different degrees of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you purchase a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll manage everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are linked to your web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options as well as any web content which you create or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you've selected during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option which you are able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
