When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 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 will be able to update each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, but you will also have a graphical interface you can use to take care of your world wide web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you need to run any kind of software which you can not set up in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to take care of the content on your hosting server, yet the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will pick throughout the registration process. The same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server has 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 a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your site content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
