Full Root-level Access
What does the full root-level access option entail? What benefits will it bestow you with? How to sign in to your server as root?
Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize every file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the hosting server. The root-level access function will give you full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting services
that we supply are suitable for a variety of purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and what experience you have. When the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your Internet content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications which may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. This way, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
no matter which plan you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you are able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans suitable for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and also any website content which you generate or upload, while when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen throughout the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you can choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
