If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is 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 install software that may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS web hosting service which we offer are suitable for various purposes, based on what you want to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content using a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications which may be needed for your websites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select throughout the signup process. The very same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something that can't 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 aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
