Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change any file on a specific server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we provide are appropriate for various purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. That way, you will be able to select the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll 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'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you will still be able to perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
