When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things as well as to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS hosting plans which we provide are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you'd like to install and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed for your sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of 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 Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. Thus, you will be able to choose the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at registration. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
