Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and modify any file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control of your server from almost any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, yet you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your online content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice if you need to run any software which you are unable to install in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, however, the root access rights are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you'll choose during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
