If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and also to generate 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 safety reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we offer are suitable for many different purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. 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 dedicated servers that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over your server. The significant amount of resources which you will receive makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to take care of, still the root access to such a machine will be limited.
