Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software which can modify certain settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also make additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers 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 hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your Internet content via a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side applications which may be needed for your web sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything through a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. That way, you can choose the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated servers that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You'll be able to order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over the server. The significant amount of resources which you will receive makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, however the root access to such a machine is restricted.
