Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software which can change specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - daily 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 that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console 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 select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party tool. 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 which are related to your web content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll select during the signup process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your site content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
