Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software that can update specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

The Linux VPS packages which we supply are appropriate for different purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content with a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps that may be needed by your websites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you can select the virtual server package that you need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of the dedicated hosting which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do using a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control of the machine. The tremendous amount of system resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, but the root access to such a server will be limited.
