The Linux VPS which we supply are suitable for different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and what experience you have. When the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your online content with a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps that may be required by your websites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console.

With the final Control Panel option that you'll be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
