Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software that can change particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also make additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily 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 you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS plans which we offer are suitable for various purposes, depending 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 hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content using a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications that may be needed for your sites and even by offline applications, which include 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 using a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you can pick the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick during the signup process. The very same is valid when you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with limited root access.
