Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The Linux VPS web hosting which we offer are suitable for many different purposes, depending on what you want to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If 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 online content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications which may be required by your websites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console.

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you choose during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options and also any website content that you create or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS that you've selected throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option that you will be able to select on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
