When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting which we supply are appropriate for different purposes, depending on what you want to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. That way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each 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 want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, however you'll still be able to perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
