Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify any file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine 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 provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS plans which we provide are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you intend 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'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content using a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your websites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. This way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared web hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have full control of your machine. The significant amount of resources that you will get makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to take care of, still the root access to such a server is limited.
