Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also set up software that can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

If you acquire a virtual private servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to change each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas 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 accessible to control your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you wish to run any software that you cannot set up in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to take care of the content on the server, but the root access rights will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers are the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
