When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you will be able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things and also to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven application that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting which we provide are appropriate for different purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content using a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps that may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you can choose the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and modify 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 also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you will still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
