If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting which we supply are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting 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 through a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side applications which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. That way, you will be able to select the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options as well as any website content which you generate or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
