If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you'll be able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting that we supply are appropriate for a variety of purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
