Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also set up software which can change certain settings on your server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you need. You may also create various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting packages which we provide are appropriate for various purposes, depending on what you want to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your online content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. That way, you'll be able to select the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at registration. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
