When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers which we provide are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you intend to install and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. In this way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at signup. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
