Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and customize each file on a particular server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also make various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for day-to-day 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 will provide you with full control over your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll control everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your online content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you get your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
