Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can update specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you'd like. You can also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS services which we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you'd like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If the hosting 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 Internet content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of the Linux dedicated hosting which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do using a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of your server. The tremendous amount of resources which you will get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, yet the root access to such a server will be restricted.
