Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software that can change certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter 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 want. You may also generate additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

When you acquire a virtual private servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in three 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 change any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your world wide web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice in case you need to run any kind of software that you can't set up in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on the hosting server, however, the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, but you will still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
