When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you can both access and update any file, including system files, and modify 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 also to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS which we offer are suitable for various purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your online content using a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, 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 Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan 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 all of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options and also any web content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option that you're able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
