Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software which can change certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You can also create additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS hosting plans which we offer are suitable for various purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side applications which may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server package which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
