If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you'll be able to both access and update any file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our Linux VPS
come with different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you get a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. 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 that are linked to your online content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you obtain your 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 limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we provide features full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've chosen at signup. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
