Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify each file on a particular server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. The root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The VPS web hosting services which we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the 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 web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server plan which you 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 pick during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages ideal for multi-media apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of a variety of server-side options as well as any website content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System which you've selected during the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option that you are able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
