Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software which can change particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you want. You can also create additional 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's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
The Linux VPS
that we provide are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications which may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server package which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide 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 install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you will still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
