Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update any file on a particular server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function will give you full control over your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS web hosting plans that we offer are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content using a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications that may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the signup process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server needs 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 abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your site content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with limited root access.
