Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize any 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 needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you buy a VPS servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no web hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to modify each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, but you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to control your world wide web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you would like to run any software which you can not set up in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on your server, yet the root access rights are more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, 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 using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you can still do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
