Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software that can update particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you want. You can also make other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The Linux VPS web hosting packages which we offer are suitable for various different purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. Thus, you can select the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll 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 ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options as well as any web content which you create or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS which you have selected during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option which you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
