Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize each 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 certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers 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 want the server for. When you get a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything using a console, unless you install a third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can 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 get one of the dedicated servers that we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have full control of the machine. The tremendous amount of system resources that you will have makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, however the root access to such a machine is limited.
