Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software that can update specific settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can do anything you want. You can also make additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done through 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 control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting which we supply are appropriate for various different purposes, depending on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to control your online content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still set up server-side apps which may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline applications, for instance VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to manage. In this way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will choose throughout the registration process. The very same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with limited root access.
