If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you'll be able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our VPS include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you obtain a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your online content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
