Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can change specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that 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 make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may 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 Servers

You are able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything through a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS and any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, but you will still be able to perform quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
