Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize every file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. Your root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your server. The root-level access feature gives you full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS packages come with different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will select throughout the signup process. The very same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which 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 via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with limited root access.
