Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software that can update certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed 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 can perform anything you'd like. You may also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's 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 can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS web hosting service which we provide are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your Internet content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. This way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
