Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You may also set up software that can change certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You're able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled through an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to do everything via a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS as well as any system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of the dedicated hosting which we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server without web hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control of the machine. The huge amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, yet the root access to such a machine will be limited.
