If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our VPS hosting include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you obtain a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you install a third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When 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 Web Hosting

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll select throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
