Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update any file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS servers which we provide are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content with a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps which may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through 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 most convenient to control. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will pick during the signup process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
