Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software that can update specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are 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 will be able to perform anything you want. You may also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers come with different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you buy a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can take care of everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the Linux dedicated service that we provide, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control over the server. The huge amount of system resources which you will have makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to take care of, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
