Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software that can modify particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you want. You can also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers
feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you will manage everything using a console, unless you set up a third-party software 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 online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you order your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload with 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 without a Control Panel, you can set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
