Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify every file on a specific 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 function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with 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 appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you can choose the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you are able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and any site content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS which you've selected during the registration process. With the last Control Panel option which you can select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
