Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update every file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through 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 one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our VPS web hosting feature different levels of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll manage everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you will be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans perfect 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 that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options as well as any site content that you create or upload, while when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you've selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you are able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
