Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can change particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can do anything you'd like. You can also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. 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 that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS that we supply are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps that may be needed by your websites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you can select the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans suitable for multi-media apps with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control a variety of server-side options and also any website content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System which you've selected during the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option that you'll be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
