When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and update any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things as well as 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 safety reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers which we offer are suitable for various purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content with a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be required by your sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. That way, you will be able to choose the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting package, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
