Full Root-level Access
Discover what exactly ‘full root-level access’ means, what privileges it will give you and ways to utilize them to customize your server.
Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update any kind of file on a specific server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The Linux VPS web hosting services
that we supply are suitable for different purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When 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 online content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps that may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server
whatever the plan you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages suitable for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and also any web content which you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the OS which you've chosen during the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you will be able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
