Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can change specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you would like. You can also make other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. 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 that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting packages which we offer are appropriate for a variety of purposes, depending on what you'd like to install and run on them and the experience that you have. If your hosting server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content via a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side apps which may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. Thus, you'll be able to select the virtual server package which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you're able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options and also any website content which you generate or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the OS that you have selected throughout the registration process. With the third Control Panel option that you can select on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
