Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software that can change certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are logged 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 can do anything you want. You may also generate other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily 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 you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers come with different degrees of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you'll manage everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. If you obtain the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated servers that we offer, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You can order the server without any web 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 Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control of the machine. The tremendous amount of resources that you will have makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any kind of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to maintain, however the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
