Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are 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 will be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use 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 to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS hosting plans that we offer are suitable for a variety of purposes, depending on what you intend to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be needed for your web sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of 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 custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. Thus, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you can update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of a variety of server-side options as well as any website content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected during the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you will be able to select on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
