Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you would like. You may also create various other users either with similar 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 really need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans feature different degrees of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can take care of everything from a console, unless you install a third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you order your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you select during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and also any web content which you create or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you've selected throughout the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you're able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
