Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also set up software which can update certain settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you'd like. You may also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, 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 which can be done through other accounts. You may 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

The Linux VPS which we offer are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your websites and even by offline apps, 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 through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you choose throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you will be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options and any web content which you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the OS which you have chosen during the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you will be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
