Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software which can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you want. You can also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ 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 in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting that we provide are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your online content via a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline applications, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any 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 tailor-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. In this way, you can select the virtual server plan which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will choose during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
