If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and change any file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven application that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers that we provide are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps that may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you can select the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you select during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans ideal for multi-media apps with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options and any website content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you've chosen during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you're able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
