Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change every file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans come with 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 will need the server for. If you buy a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You can install different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you obtain the virtual website 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

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you choose throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options as well as any site content that you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option that you can pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
