Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software which can change specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also create additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do through 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
The Linux VPS packages that we supply are suitable for a variety of purposes, depending on what you want to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content using a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications that may be required by your web sites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. This way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server plan that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you choose throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you'll be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options and also any site content which you create or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the OS which you've selected throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option that you will be able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
