Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and customize each file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we offer are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. That way, you will be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

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