If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this 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 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's recommended that you make another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our VPS packages feature different degrees of access, so as 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 with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can take care of everything from a console, unless you install some third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, if 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 which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you will still be able to do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
