Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You can also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting service
which we supply are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content using a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps which may be needed by your sites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. This way, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we supply provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you can still perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
