If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven app that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
The Linux VPS
which we offer are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications that may be needed by your Internet 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 Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each 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'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
