Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can update certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you'd like. You may also create other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our VPS hosting include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. If you purchase a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will manage everything from a console, unless you install a third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things which are related to your world-wide web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you order your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll pick during the signup process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because 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 via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
