Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize any file on a specific server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control over your server from any kind of location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting feature different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will control everything using a console, unless you install some third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are related to your online content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you select 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 will choose during the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server has 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 installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with limited root access.
