Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update every file on a selected server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. Your root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control of your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our VPS hosting include different levels of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you get a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your online content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you obtain the virtual 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 control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package 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 three cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options and any web content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS that you've chosen throughout the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you're able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
