If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and also to generate other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS plans include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your world-wide web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
