Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also install software which can modify certain settings on your 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 will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You may also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done 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 manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers include different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you buy a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you obtain your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you will still be able to perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
