When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things as well as to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established using 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 use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
When you get a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you will also have a graphical interface accessible to control your world wide web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you want to run any software that you can't set up in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to take care of the content on your hosting server, but the root access privileges are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
