Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and change any kind of file on a selected server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with full control over your server from any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
When you order a virtual private servers
from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server has no website hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to control your online content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you need to run any kind of software that you cannot install in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, but the root access rights will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you will choose during the signup process. The same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your site content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
