Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software that can modify specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you want. You may also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting packages that we supply are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If the 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 take care of your online content with a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps that may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared web hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control over your server. The huge amount of resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, but the root access to such a machine is limited.
