If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and update any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make one more user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS plans which we supply are suitable for various 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 website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, if 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 apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
