Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software that can update particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you need. You may also create various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting plans which we offer are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and what experience you have. When the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content via a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you will choose throughout the signup process. The same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
