Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change any file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. The root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control of your server from any existing location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers which we provide are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content with a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications that may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you can select the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your website content will be controlled via 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.
