Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also generate additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use 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 to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You can manage your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan which you have picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed through an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you'll have to do everything using a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and custom content on it all of the time, which makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you can still perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
