If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and change any file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and also to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS hosting service which we provide are suitable for many different purposes, depending on what you wish to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content with a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case 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 during the signup process. The very same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your site content will be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
