When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and modify any file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using 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 have to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS which we supply are suitable for many different purposes, depending on what you wish to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content via a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed by your websites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. This way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers are the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
