Full Root-level Access
What does the full root-level access feature include? What privileges will it bestow you with? How to log into your server as root?
Having full root-level access means that you can access and update any kind of file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from any existing location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers
which we offer are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps which may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, however you will still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
