Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update every file on a particular server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. The root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting come with different levels of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you obtain a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your online content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you obtain the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without 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 find fit, which makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options and also any web content which you create or upload, while if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System which you have selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you can choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
