Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize any kind of file on a particular server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting that we provide are appropriate for a variety of purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications which may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline applications, for example 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 using a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you'll be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options and also any site content which you generate or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you can select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
