Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software that can change particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you need. You can also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

When you acquire a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to manage your online content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you want to run any software which you can not install in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on the server, but the root access rights are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll select throughout the registration process. The very same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your site content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
