Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update every file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You'll be able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package that you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled through an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to do everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you'll still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
