Having full root-level access means that you can access and update every file on a selected server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for everyday 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 of your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers which we provide are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you want to install and run on them and what experience you have. If your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side applications that may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you can pick the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you select throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options and also any web content that you create or upload, while if you order the server devoid of 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've selected during the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option that you are able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
