Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software which can change specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can do anything you want. You may also make additional 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 which can be done 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 Servers

The Linux VPS service that we supply are suitable for a variety of purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your web content using a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications which may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, like 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. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. That way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the dedicated servers which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server without web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over your machine. The significant amount of system resources that you'll get makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to manage, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
