Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software which can modify certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you'd like. You may also generate additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ 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 in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS servers which we provide are suitable for various different purposes, depending on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your websites and even by offline applications, like 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 using a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you can choose the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose throughout the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your web content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
