Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software which can modify certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also make additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - daily 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 which can be done 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 Servers

The VPS servers which we offer are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your online content with a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your websites and even by offline apps, for instance VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you will be able to choose the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you select 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 will select during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your website content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with limited root access.
