If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application whatever the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting that we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your online content via a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps which may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. That way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you will still be able to do a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
