When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting packages include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to pick 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 will manage everything using a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your online content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select during the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
