Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You may also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our Linux VPS packages come with different levels of access, to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you purchase a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will control everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but most of the things which are related to your online content can be performed through a graphical interface and not a console. You can install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you get 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 simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
