Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also set up software that can change particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter 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 would like. You may also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, 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 through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be managed through an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to make everything using a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system and custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
