Having full root-level access means that you can access and change any file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we offer are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps which may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll 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 will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. In this way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose during the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your website content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
