Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You may also set up software which can update specific settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you need. You can also make various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify each 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 changes, yet you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your world wide web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you would like to run any kind of software which you are unable to set up in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on the hosting server, but the root access rights will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you choose during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you'll be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages suitable for multi-media apps with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control numerous server-side options and any web content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the OS that you've selected throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you can pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
