If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and also to create other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS service feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will control everything through a console, unless you install a third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your web content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers will be the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you can still do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
