Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change each file on a particular server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any kind of 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 different purposes, depending on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps that may be needed by your sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you choose throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you are able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans suitable for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options and any web content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS which you have chosen during the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you will be able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
