Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software which can change particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also generate additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need 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 actually need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You may 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 VPS servers which we supply are suitable for various purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and what experience you have. When the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content using a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications which may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. That way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll pick during the registration process. The very same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your site content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
