Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, 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 at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You can also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, 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 you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting services which we supply are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you would like to install and run on them and what experience you have. When your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your online content using a graphical interface, while you can still install server-side apps which may be needed for your websites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. When you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you can select the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans suitable for multi-media apps with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options as well as any site content which you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you are able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
