Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update any file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access function gives you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS hosting service which we supply are appropriate for a variety of purposes, based on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps which may be required by your websites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you select during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control numerous server-side options and also any site content which you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS which you have chosen during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you'll be able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
