Full Root-level Access
Learn about what precisely ‘full root-level access’ indicates, what benefits you will have and the ways to use them to modify your server.
If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and change any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things as well as to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers
feature different levels 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. If you purchase a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you set up a third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your online content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide provides you with full root-level access, if 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 apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you can still perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
