Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can update specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You may also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily 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 through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers which we supply are suitable for many different purposes, depending on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your Internet content through a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP software, 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 using a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
