Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software that can update certain settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you need. You may also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You can 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 Servers

Our VPS servers include different levels of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you get a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will take care of everything from a console, unless you install a third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your online content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You can install different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you order the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will select during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your web content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
