If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side application whatever the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS hosting plans come with different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything using a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your online content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, 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 using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
