Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS web hosting plans that we provide are suitable for different purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications which may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you choose throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options as well as any web content which you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you will be able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
