If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you can both access and modify any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS hosting service that we provide are appropriate for different purposes, depending on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps that may be required by your web sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you will be able to choose the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
