Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change every file on a particular server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS web hosting plans which we offer are suitable for various different purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you'll select during the registration process. The same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your hosting server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your website content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
