Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software which can change certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You may also make additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The VPS that we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you intend to install and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content via a graphical interface, while you may still install server-side apps which may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. That way, you'll be able to select the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will select throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
