Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software that can update specific settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also make various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally 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 manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS come with different degrees of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you purchase a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things which are related to your web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you'll be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options as well as any site content which you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you'll be able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
