Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software that can change specific settings on the server throughout the, so 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 your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. 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 that you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting services which we offer are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your online content with a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed by your sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest 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 select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose during the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your web content will be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
