Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software which can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You may also generate additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use 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 be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we supply are suitable for different purposes, depending on what you intend to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications which may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. That way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we offer, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared web hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You'll be able to order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control of the machine. The significant amount of system resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, yet the root access to such a machine is limited.
