Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update any file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to function properly. 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 create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more 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 feature will provide you with full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting which we offer are suitable for various purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you choose during 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 3 cases, you will be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and any web content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen during the registration process. With the last Control Panel option which you're able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
