If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you will be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and to create other users, including 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 is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS web hosting service that we supply are appropriate for various purposes, based on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content via a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, like 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. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
