Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software which can change certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You can also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do via 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 manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS web hosting service which we supply are suitable for different purposes, based on what you want to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your web content via a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. That way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've chosen at registration. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you can still do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
