Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also install software that can update particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting include different levels of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you buy a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your online content can be done through 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 order the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you choose throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you can change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages suitable for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options as well as any website content which you generate or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the OS which you have selected throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you are able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
