If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you can both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The Linux VPS web hosting which we supply are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side applications which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you can choose the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at registration. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, however you can still do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
