Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also set up software which can change specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you need. You can also generate additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers feature different degrees 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 want the server for. When you purchase a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll choose during the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your web content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
