Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize any kind of file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. The root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your hosting server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS hosting plans include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you buy a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll manage everything from a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case 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 packages you will pick during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your site content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
