Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software which can modify particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you need. You may also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything through a console, unless you install some third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be reduced. 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 whatever the plan you select during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you are able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options and also any site content that you generate or upload, while when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System which you have selected during the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you are able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
