Full Root-level Access
What does the full root-level access feature entail? What privileges will it bestow you with? How to sign in to your server as root?
Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize each file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate other users. For security 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 perform a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
You'll be able to manage your new virtual private servers
at the root level whatever the package which you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled from an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to make everything via a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we offer features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, 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 registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still do a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
