Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software which can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you want. You can also create various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ 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 connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
The Linux VPS
which we supply are appropriate for many different purposes, depending on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your Internet content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps which may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to control. This way, you can pick the virtual server plan that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you will pick during the signup process. The same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your website content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
