Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can update certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You may also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really 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 to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting feature different levels of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. If you acquire a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will control everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party software instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, but most of the things which are related to your web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you order the virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web 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, no matter which of our plans you will pick during the registration process. The very same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the chance to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something that 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 through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your site content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
