Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also set up software which can change specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you want. You can also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, 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 can be done using 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

Our VPS services come with different degrees of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you obtain a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will control everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you get the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you pick 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 packages you will pick during the signup process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
