When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you'll be able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting
include 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 want the server for. If you purchase a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will take care of everything through a console, unless you install a third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things that are related to your web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You can install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you order your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server
whatever the package you choose during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options as well as any web content which you create or upload, whereas if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen during the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you can pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
