Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also set up software that can change specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you would like. You may also make other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. 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 which can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
feature different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you get a VPS without Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will manage everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, yet most of the things which are related to your world-wide web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you order the virtual website hosting 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 simplest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you will pick during the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server has to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
