Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update each file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. Your root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The VPS that we supply are suitable for various purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications which may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. This way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you are able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will 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, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the OS which you have chosen during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option which you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
