Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any file on a specific server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function 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 a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with full control of your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS service which we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications which may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select throughout the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
