Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change each file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. The root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from any existing location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting that we supply are suitable for different purposes, based on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. In this way, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish 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 web hosting package, our servers are the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
