Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also set up software that can update particular settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You can also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You will be able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed via a user-friendly web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to do everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide provides you with 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 applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
