If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting service
which we provide are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps which may be needed for your web sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you can choose the virtual server package that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you pick 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'll pick throughout the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
