Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software that can change particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you would like. You may also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually 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 with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The VPS which we supply are suitable for various purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content with a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications which may be needed by your sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you can select the virtual server plan which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

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 will choose throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your website content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
