When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server features no web 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 via a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface available to take care of your online content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice in case you need to run any software which you cannot install in a regular 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 hosting server, however, the root access rights will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will pick throughout the registration process. The very same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the website 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 alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your website content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
