Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize each file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
include different levels of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you buy a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll manage everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your online content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you obtain the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated servers
which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You'll be able to order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, 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 3 cases, you will have complete control over the machine. The tremendous amount of resources that you'll get makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to maintain, still the root access to such a machine is restricted.
