Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update any kind of file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS plans which we offer are suitable for various purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps that may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. That way, you can select the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no 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 web hosting package, our servers will be the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, however you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
