When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and change any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers
come with different levels of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you buy a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll manage everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you get the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you will select throughout the registration process. The very same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your website content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
