When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and modify any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers which we offer are appropriate for a variety of purposes, depending on what you wish to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side applications that may be required by your web sites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. 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 custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you can pick the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to perform lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
