Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also install software that can change certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you'd like. You may also create various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers feature different levels of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you get a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything through a console, unless you install a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, but most of the things that are linked to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you order your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do using a shared web hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You'll be able to order the server without 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 control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over the server. The tremendous amount of system resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, still the root access to such a machine will be limited.
