Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also set up software that can change certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you want. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you purchase a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything from a console, unless you install some third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your web content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. When you get your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may 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 Servers
Each dedicated server
that we offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
