Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software which can change certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you need. You may also make other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting services come with different levels of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you obtain a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options as well as any site content which you create or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the OS that you have selected throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you are able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
