Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software that can update certain settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You can also make other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through 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 Servers

You are able to control your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you have picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled from a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to do everything using a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system and / or 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 because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at registration. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you can still perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
