Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change every file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS services that we offer are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be required by your sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. That way, you can select the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you select during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages suitable for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options and any web content which you create or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you will be able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
