Full Root-level Access
What does the full root-level access feature entail? What benefits will it bestow you with? How to log into your server as root?
Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and change any file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS service
which we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your online content using a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps that may be needed for your sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you can pick the virtual server package that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you will pick during the registration process. The same is valid if you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
