Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also install software which can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can do anything you would like. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, 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 you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to make everything through a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system and custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
