When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and modify any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven app that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

If you buy a virtual private 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'll be able to change any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to control your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you want to run any software that you can not set up in an ordinary shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by using SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, however, the root access rights are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

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 plans you will pick during the registration process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your site content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
