Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify 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 specific scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS plans that we supply are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. In this way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server package that you really need.
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 plans you will choose during the registration process. The same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your web content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
