Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can update particular settings on the server throughout the, so 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 the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you'd like. You can also create various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting service which we offer are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps which may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you'll be able to select the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
