Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize any file on a particular server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting plans
which we supply are suitable for different purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications that may be needed by your websites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have 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. In this way, you can pick the virtual server package that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at registration. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
