Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software that can modify certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're 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 do anything you need. You can also create other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really 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 be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The VPS hosting packages which we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your online content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you select during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options and any website content which you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the OS which you've chosen during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option which you will be able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
