Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software that can update certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you would like. You can also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting plans
include 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 need the server for. If you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will control everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things that are related to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you obtain the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
