Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify every file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the server. The root-level access feature offers you full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS web hosting service that we supply are appropriate for a variety of purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content using a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose during the signup process. The same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server should 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 alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your site 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 receive a server with limited root access.
