If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, 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 customize any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The VPS web hosting packages that we provide are suitable for many different purposes, depending on what you want to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps that may be needed for your sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you can choose the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you'll choose during the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your website content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
