Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update every file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the server. The root-level access function gives you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server has no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can modify 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, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice when you want to run any kind of software that you can not set up in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
