If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and change any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to generate 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 security reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ 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 wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS service come with different levels of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you get a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything from a console, unless you install a third-party 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 which are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you will choose during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up 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 obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
