Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and modify any kind of file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned things. The root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS service that we supply are suitable for different purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP software, 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 through a console. When you choose to use our in-house 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 will be able to choose the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
