When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things and also to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS plans which we supply are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, including VoIP programs, 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 using a console. When you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting package, our servers are the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
