Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also install software that can change certain settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You can also make other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday 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 can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting feature different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you get a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will control everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are linked to your web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you order the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will pick throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your hosting server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
