When 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 app regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to create other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we supply are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps that may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. This way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers which we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You can order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control over your machine. The tremendous amount of resources that you will get makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, still the root access to such a server will be limited.
