When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and modify any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and also to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The VPS hosting packages which we offer are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your web sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every 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'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify 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 manage everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
