Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update every file on a particular server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by 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 perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your server. The root-level access feature gives you full control over your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we provide are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your online content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. That way, you can choose the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options as well as any web content which you create or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will 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've selected throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you are able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
