Full Root-level Access
What does the full root-level access feature entail? What rights will it bestow you with? How to log into your server as root?
Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update any file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
You are able to manage your new virtual private servers
at the root level whatever the plan which you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be managed through an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything using a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we offer provides you with 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 setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
