If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can install any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and also to generate other users, including users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, yet you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to take care of your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you would like to run any kind of software which you are unable to install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
