Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software that can modify particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You can also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - daily 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 that 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 control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The VPS hosting packages that we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications that may be required by your websites and even by offline apps, which include 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 need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. That way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will pick during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up 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 obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
