Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change any kind of file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS feature different levels of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you get a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, but most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you obtain your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will select throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
