Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software that can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you want. You can also make various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done via other accounts. You may 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 Servers

You can take care of your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan which you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled via an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you'll have to do everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at signup. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you will still be able to perform quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
