Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software that can change specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you would like. You may also create various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. 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 which can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS hosting plans which we offer are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content through a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side applications that may be required by your sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to control. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will pick throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
