Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change any kind of file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS which we offer are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. That way, you can select the virtual server package that 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 choose during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you will be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage many different 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 through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you are able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
