Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change any kind of file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to change any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, however you will also have a graphical interface accessible to control your web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice in case you would like to run any software that you are unable to install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, yet the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case 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 packages you will select throughout the registration process. The same is valid when you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server has to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
