Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software that can change certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also create various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you get a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can update any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, still you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice if you wish to run any software which you cannot install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on your hosting server, but the root access privileges are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will choose throughout the registration process. The very same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the chance to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your site content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
