When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you will be able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things as well as to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The VPS hosting which we supply are appropriate for different purposes, depending on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications which may be needed for your web sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will pick throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your website content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
