Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software which can update certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You may also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The Linux VPS web hosting which we offer are appropriate for many different purposes, based on what you want to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content via a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications which may be required by your websites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package that you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
