When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven application that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting
include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your web content can be done with 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 get your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we provide gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you can still do a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
