Having full root-level access means that you can access and change any kind of file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're 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 server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS packages which we supply are appropriate for a variety of purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, like 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 custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you choose throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control a variety of server-side options as well as any site content which you create or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS which you have selected during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option which you'll be able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
