When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things and to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The VPS web hosting that we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content using a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. Thus, you can pick the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can install a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, but you can still do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
