Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also install software which can update specific settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also generate various other users either with similar 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 is usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You are able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled through an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to do everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system and custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer 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 applications and they have special requirements about the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you can still perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
