Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can modify specific settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can do anything you'd like. You can also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers include different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you get a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party software instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, however most of the things which are related to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you get your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the signup process. The very same is valid if you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with limited root access.
