Full Root-level Access
What does the full root-level access feature entail? What rights will it bestow you with? How to sign in to your server as root?
Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize each file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our Linux VPS
include different levels of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can manage everything through a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we supply features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you will still be able to perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
