Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize each file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. Your root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no web hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to modify each part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, but you will also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your online content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice in case you want to run any software which you can not install in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to control the content on your server, but the root access privileges will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. The same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with limited root access.
