Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also set up software which can change specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you need. You can also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting packages come with different levels of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things which are related to your web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you choose throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options and also any website content which you generate or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS that you've selected throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
