When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a separate user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting which we provide are appropriate for different purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have 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 limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. This way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages perfect for multi-media apps with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options and also any website content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option which you're able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
