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 set up software which can update certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you are 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 will be able to do anything you want. You can also create various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS that we offer are appropriate for a variety of purposes, depending on what you want to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content using a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications which may be needed for your sites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. This way, you will be able to select the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, if 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 specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers will be the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas 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, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you can still do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
