Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also install software which can change certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you want. You can also generate other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, 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 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 Servers

Our VPS plans come with different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can manage everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, but most of the things that are related to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you order the virtual 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 easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You can order the server with no website hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over your server. The considerable amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to manage, yet the root access to such a machine is limited.
