Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS packages come with different levels of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you get a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will take care of everything from a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your world-wide web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll choose throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
