Having full root-level access means that you can access and modify each file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control of your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS hosting plans include different levels of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you obtain a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will take care of everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will choose during the registration process. The same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a 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 cannot 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 choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
