Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can update certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you need. You may also create additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You may 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 Servers

The VPS plans that we supply are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side applications which may be required by your sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control over your server. The tremendous amount of system resources which you will receive makes our dedicated packages a great choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to take care of, still the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
