If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and update any file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS servers which we offer are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that 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 manage your online content using a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications that may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. Thus, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting package, our servers are the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
