Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You may also create various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's 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 in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS hosting service
come with different levels of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything using a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also come with full root access, but 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'll be able to install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without any problems. If you order your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
