When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and change any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The VPS web hosting that we offer are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content through a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps which may be needed for your websites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. This way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you are able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans perfect for multi-media apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options and also any website content which you create or upload, while if you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System that you have selected throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option that you can choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
