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

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS servers which we offer are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you would like to install 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'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be needed for your websites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to pick the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case 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 will choose during the registration process. The very same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
