Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change each file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function will give you full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a virtual private servers from us, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no web hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, but you'll also have a graphical interface available to take care of your web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice in case you would like to run any software which you cannot 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 control the content on the server, but the root access privileges are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage 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 some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at registration. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you will still be able to do quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
