Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can modify certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you need. You can also create additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done 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

The VPS servers which we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side applications that may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the signup process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your website content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
