Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software that can update particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are logged 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'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You may also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. 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 can be done via 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

Our VPS servers feature different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you buy a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can take care of everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are linked to your world-wide web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options and also any site content that you generate or upload, while when you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS which you've selected during the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option that you will be able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
