Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and change any file on a selected server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS servers that we supply are appropriate for various purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content using a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications that may be needed by your websites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. That way, you will be able to select the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you'll pick during the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
