Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify 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 required by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the hosting server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers
that we supply are suitable for different purposes, depending on what you wish 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 will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you can choose the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the Linux dedicated service
that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do using a shared web hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You may order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over your machine. The tremendous amount of resources that you will receive makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to manage, still the root access to such a machine will be limited.
