If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you're 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 which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans come with different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you get a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will control everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your web content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You can install different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you obtain the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you'll still be able to do a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
