Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize any file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function will give you full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
The Linux VPS packages that we provide are suitable for different purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. When the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be required by your web sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. 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 in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. In this way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll choose during the signup process. The very same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with limited root access.
