Having full root-level access means that you can access and modify any file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. Your root user can also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS hosting plans that we provide are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps that may be needed for your web sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you choose throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you'll be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options and any web content that you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you've chosen throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you can choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
