Full Root-level Access
Learn about what ‘full root-level access’ implies, what privileges it will give you and the ways to use them to enhance your server.
Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify any kind of file on a specific server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
come with different levels of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you purchase a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you install a third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer provides you with full root-level access, when 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 with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you will still be able to perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
