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.
