If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you will be able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The Linux VPS web hosting which we provide are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you wish to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If 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 control your Internet content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps that may be required by your web sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. In this way, you'll be able to select the virtual server package that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
