Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change each file on a particular server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another 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 gives you full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, still you will also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you would like to run any software which you cannot install in a standard 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 the hosting server, however, the root access rights are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will pick during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your website content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
