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 set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS hosting plans that we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your online content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. Thus, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting package, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control 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 can always set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at signup. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, however you can still do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
