Having full root-level access means that you can access and modify any file on a specific server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also create other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The VPS hosting which we supply are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your online content using a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. That way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your site content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
