Having full root-level access means that you can access and modify any kind of file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with different levels of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you obtain a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything using a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your online content can be done using a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you order the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options and also any website content which you create or upload, whereas if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS which you have chosen during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option which you are able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
