When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you can both access and modify any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You will be able to control your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package which you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled from a user-friendly web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to make everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system or custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
