Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change any kind of file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. Your 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 perform a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control over your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 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 will be able to change any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, but you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you need to run any software which you can not install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, yet the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you will still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
