When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The Linux VPS web hosting packages
that we offer are suitable for a variety of purposes, depending on what you wish to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed by your websites and even by offline applications, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you will be able to choose the virtual server plan which you really need.

The huge amount of system resources which you'll have makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, however the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
