Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change every file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. Your root user can also make various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from any existing location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers 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'll need the server for. When you obtain a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will manage everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you obtain the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do using a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You can order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you install some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control over your server. The huge amount of resources that you'll have makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to manage, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
