Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software that can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you're logged 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 will be able to do anything you would like. You may also make other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, 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 you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The Linux VPS web hosting service that we provide are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications that may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. 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 in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you will still be able to do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
