Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can change certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you'd like. You can also generate 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's usually recommended to use 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 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 servers that we supply are appropriate for various purposes, based on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your world-wide web content using a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to manage. In this way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package which you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll choose throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
