Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software which can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible 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 whenever you want and you can perform anything you need. You can also generate additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ 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 to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
The Linux VPS that we supply are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you would like to install and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps that may be required by your web sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any 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 built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. In this way, you can select the virtual server package which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, but you will still be able to do quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
