Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change each file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also make various other users. For safety 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 task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS hosting plans which we provide are suitable for different purposes, depending on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side applications which may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. That way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you select during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you'll be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options as well as any web content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
