When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things and also to create other users, including users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, however you will also have a graphical interface available to take care of your world wide web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice if you would like to run any kind of software that you cannot set up in a regular shared 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 your server, however, the root access rights are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When 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 plans you will choose during the signup process. The very same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since 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, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content can be controlled through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
