Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also set up software which can change specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you need. You may also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, 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 that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS packages feature different levels of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will control everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you obtain your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
