Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and modify any kind of file on a selected server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also create other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the server. The root-level access function gives you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

When you buy a virtual private servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify each part of the system with a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, still you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to control your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice when you wish to run any kind of software that you are unable to install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on your server, however, the root access rights will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll select throughout the signup process. The same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content will be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
