Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also set up software which can modify certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You may also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers which we offer are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you want to install and run on them and what experience you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications that may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you will still be able to do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
