You may also set up software that can modify particular settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are signed 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 will be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS service which we provide are suitable for various different purposes, depending on what you wish to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. When the hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to control your world-wide web content through a graphical interface, while you may still set up server-side apps which may be needed by your web sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera.

In all of these 3 cases, you are able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control numerous server-side options as well as any web content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS which you have selected during the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you can select on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
