Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize every file on a specific 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 function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS service that we supply are suitable for different purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your Internet content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. In this way, you can pick the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will choose during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
