Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software that can modify particular settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you need. You can also create various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
The Linux VPS packages which we supply are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content via a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps which may be needed for your web sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you can pick the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting package, our servers are the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you will still be able to do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
