Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify any kind of file on a particular server, including all 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 properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. The root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different 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 attribute will give you full control of your server from almost any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS service that we offer are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you want to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you will pick throughout the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
