Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize each file on a specific server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, but you will also have a graphical interface available to manage your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice when you would like to run any software which you can't install in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on your hosting server, but the root access privileges are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll pick throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having 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 will be managed through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
