Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also install software which can modify specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you'd like. You may also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require 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 which can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with 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 purchase a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will take care of everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you obtain your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at registration. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
