Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also install software which can update specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you need. You can also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. 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 which can be done via other accounts. You may 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 Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting packages which we provide are suitable for various purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your web content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps that may be needed by your web sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will pick throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
