Full Root-level Access
Learn just what ‘full root-level access’ means, what benefits you will have and the ways to utilize them to enhance your server.
Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update every file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with full control over your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting packages
feature different levels of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you purchase a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll control everything from a console, unless you install a third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get the 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 reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
whatever the plan you select throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you'll be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and also any site content which you create or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you are able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
