Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also set up software that can change certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You may also create additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on 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 through 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 control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The Linux VPS web hosting which we provide are suitable for different purposes, depending on what you'd like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your Internet content with a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your Internet sites and even by offline apps, such as VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our tailor-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you will pick throughout the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't 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 a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with limited root access.
