Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software which can update certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you would like. You may also make other users either with identical 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 usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You can 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'll be able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the package which you have selected, 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, many system settings can be controlled from an intuitive web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to make everything using a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS plus any system and custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you can still do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
