Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change every file on a particular server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the server. The root-level access feature will give you full control over your server from any existing location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update 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 changes, however you'll also have a graphical interface available to take care of your web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice in case you want to run any kind of software that you can not install in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on your server, yet the root access rights are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you select 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 will select during the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server needs to 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 aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your website content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
