Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you want. You may also create other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's 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 control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we supply are appropriate for various different purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps which may be needed for your websites and even by offline applications, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. That way, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options as well as any web content which you create or upload, whereas if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you have selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you will be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
