Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify each file on a particular server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS hosting service which we offer are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website 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 can still install server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet 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'll have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom 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 select the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll select throughout the signup process. The very same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting 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 set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without 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 website content will be managed through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
