Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change any file on a selected server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You'll be able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be managed from a user-friendly web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to make everything via a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any system and / or custom content on it at all times, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application that you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you will still be able to do quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
