Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update any kind of file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control of your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you purchase a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, yet you will also have a graphical interface available to take care of your web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice when you need to run any software which you cannot install in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on the server, however, the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will choose during the signup process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
