Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and customize any kind of file on a particular server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS plans that we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you want to install and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications that may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you can pick the virtual server package that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you choose throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options as well as any web content that you create or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS that you've selected throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you're able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
