Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also install software which can change specific settings on your server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do 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 manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS plans that we supply are suitable for many different purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content through a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps which may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. In this way, you can pick the virtual server plan that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will choose during the registration process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with limited root access.
