Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software that can change particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter 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 generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

The Linux VPS web hosting packages which we offer are appropriate for a variety of purposes, based on what you wish to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your Internet content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side applications which may be needed for your sites and even by offline apps, which include VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etc. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you will be able to pick the virtual server package which you need.
