Full Root-level Access
Learn about what ‘full root-level access’ implies, what privileges you'll have and the way to make use of them to enhance your server.
If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and update any file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established with 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 use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans
feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will manage everything through a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your online content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you obtain your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
