Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update every file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS servers
which we provide are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content through a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps which may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. Thus, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we offer features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you will still be able to perform a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
