Full Root-level Access
Learn about what precisely ‘full root-level access’ indicates, what benefits you will have and the way to use them to customize your server.
Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change any kind of file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting service
that we offer are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications which may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer features full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at registration. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
