Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software that can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You may also create various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can 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

The VPS web hosting plans that we offer are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications which may be required by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to choose the virtual server plan that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot 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 choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
