Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also install software which can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you need. You may also create additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may 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
The VPS hosting service that we supply are suitable for many different purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your web content through a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps that may be needed by your Internet sites and even by offline apps, like VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there'll be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to manage. In this way, you will be able to choose the virtual server package which you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers which we provide, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You'll be able to order the server with no website hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, 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'll have complete control over your machine. The significant amount of resources which you'll have makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to maintain, still the root access to such a server is limited.
