Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you can do anything you'd like. You may also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through 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 Servers

The Linux VPS hosting service that we provide are suitable for various purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications which may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any 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 custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. In this way, you will be able to select the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the dedicated servers which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared web hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You may order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control of your machine. The significant amount of resources which you'll have makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to control, still the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
