If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you're able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting plans
include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you purchase a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll 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 that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things which are related to your web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you get your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you will pick during the registration process. The same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't 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 choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your site content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
