When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to make 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's recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS packages come with different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you obtain a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll control everything using a console, unless you install some third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you get the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the server has to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
