Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software which can change specific settings on the server throughout the, 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'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you want. You can also make other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, 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 that you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages include different levels of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you get a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party software 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 online content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you get the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
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 would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
