Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You can also generate other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually 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 to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
Our VPS hosting
include different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to choose the one you need, according to your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can take care of everything through a console, unless you install some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are related to your web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You can set up many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. If you obtain your virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to manage.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify 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 manage everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you can still do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
