Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You may also make other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You may 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 Servers

You are able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package that you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
