If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, including users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you want to run.
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 pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you buy a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will take care of everything using 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 online content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your web content will be managed through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
