When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and update any file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
include different levels of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will take care of everything from a console, unless you install a third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You'll 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 is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our plans you will pick throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
