Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software that can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are 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 will be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also make other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers include different levels of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you obtain a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
