When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The VPS web hosting which we supply are appropriate for a variety of purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps which may be required by your web sites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will 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 most convenient to control. Thus, you will be able to choose the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll select during the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your web content can be controlled through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
