When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you will be able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS packages include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll control everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things that are related to your online content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you obtain the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
