Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also set up software that can change particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you need. You may also make other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can modify any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, yet you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice if you wish to run any software which you can not install in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to manage the content on your hosting server, yet the root access rights will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your site content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
