When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and update any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things as well as 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 safety reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS plans come with different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you get a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, but most of the things which are related to your world-wide web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at registration. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, however you'll still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
