When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS that we supply are suitable for various different purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content using a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications that may be needed by your sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your website content will be managed via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
