Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software which can modify particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you want. You can also make additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting packages include different levels of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you obtain the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. 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 offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
