Having full root-level access means that you can access and modify each file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with 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 modify any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, still you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice in case you need to run any kind of software which you can not set up in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on your server, but the root access rights will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will choose during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
