Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can modify specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you need. You can also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you get a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll control everything through a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, however most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, however you can still perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
