When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you'll be able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things as well as to create 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 a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The VPS hosting services which we supply are appropriate for various different purposes, depending on what you want to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content through a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, including 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 using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you can choose the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with 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 will still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
