Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also install software that can update specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you need. You may also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you need to run any kind of software that you are unable to set up in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on the server, however, the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at signup. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you can still do a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
