Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also set up software which can update certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you'd like. You may also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. 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 can be done via 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 manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting service
come with different levels of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything from 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, but most of the things which are related to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you get the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
