Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also set up software which can modify certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you want. You may also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually 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 to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with different degrees of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you get a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can take care of everything from a console, unless you install a third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are related to your online content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but 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 provide comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can install some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, however you can still perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
