Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also set up software which can update certain settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can do anything you'd like. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done 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
The Linux VPS packages
that we provide are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you'd like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content via a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps that may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you can pick the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we offer includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will 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 also most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you'll still be able to perform lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
