Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change any kind of file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS hosting plans which we provide are suitable for a variety of purposes, depending on what you wish to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If 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 Internet content with a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps that may be needed by your sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, 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 through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll choose throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed 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 acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your website content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
