Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and customize each file on a particular server, which includes all the 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 work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we supply are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps which may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. That way, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated servers that we provide, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over your server. The considerable amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
