When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven app that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting that we supply are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you intend 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 hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. In this way, you will be able to choose the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, but you can still do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
