Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify any file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS servers from us, you will 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 throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to update any part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make changes, but you will also have a graphical interface available to control your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you would like to run any software which you can not install in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to manage the content on the server, but the root access rights will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
