Full Root-level Access
Learn about what exactly ‘full root-level access’ indicates, what privileges it will give you and the way to utilize them to enhance your server.
Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change any file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. Your root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You'll be able to control your new VPS servers
at the root level regardless of the package that you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be managed from an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any kind of system and custom content on it all the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you'll select throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your web content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
