Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also set up software which can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you want. You can also make various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You're able to control your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the plan which you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled through an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to do everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any system and custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting package, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at registration. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still perform quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
