When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting packages that we provide are appropriate for various different purposes, depending on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the 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 world-wide web content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed by your websites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You will be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control of your machine. The tremendous amount of system resources that you will have makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to control, but the root access to such a machine will be limited.
