When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and change any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting service come with different levels of access, to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. When you purchase a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your web content can be done through a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to install various frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you can still do a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
