Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software which can change particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you need. You may also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS hosting plans which we supply are appropriate for different purposes, depending on what you intend to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content with a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications that may be needed for your websites and even by offline applications, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case 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 plans you'll choose throughout the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned 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 and your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
