Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can change specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also make various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS hosting plans that we offer are appropriate for various different purposes, based on what you wish to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your Internet content using a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps that may be needed for your web sites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you can pick the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will pick throughout the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the hosting server has to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your website content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with limited root access.
