Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and modify every file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control over your server from any existing location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The VPS services which we supply are appropriate for various purposes, based on what you'd like to install and run on them and what experience you have. If your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications which may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options as well as any site content that you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the OS which you have selected throughout the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you'll be able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
