If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS service
feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll manage everything through a console, unless you set up 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, however most of the things which are related to your web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we supply features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you can still do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
