When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you're 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 which has full privileges to perform all these things and to make 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 security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting packages which we provide are appropriate for various different purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be needed by your websites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you will be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage many different server-side options and any web content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the OS that you have selected throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option that you will be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
