Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can modify particular settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You may also generate additional users either with the same 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 employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to control your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan which you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be controlled through an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS plus any system or custom content on it all the time, that makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you can still do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
