If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you will be able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The Linux VPS web hosting that we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications which may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. Thus, you will be able to pick the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you're able to modify 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 that cannot be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options as well as any website content which you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the OS that you have selected throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option which you're able to select on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
