If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The Linux VPS web hosting which we provide are suitable for various different purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps that may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick during the registration process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your website content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
