Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software which can change particular settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you would like. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
The VPS web hosting
which we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you'd like to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications that may be required by your websites and even by offline applications, which include VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you will be able to pick the virtual server plan that you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at registration. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still do quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
