Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update each file on a particular server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. Your root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting packages which we offer are suitable for various purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your websites and even by offline applications, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. Thus, you will be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you select 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 3 cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages suitable for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options as well as any website content which you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you will be able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
