Full Root-level Access
Discover just what ‘full root-level access’ means, what privileges you'll have and the way to utilize them to modify your server.
Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and modify each file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. The root user may also generate other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the server. The root-level access function provides you with full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS servers
from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, but you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to control your world wide web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice in case you would like to run any kind of software which you can't set up in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on your server, however, the root access rights will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. Without any 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'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you will still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
