Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change any file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. The root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no web 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 change each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, still you will also have a graphical interface available to take care of your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice if you need to run any software that you are unable to install in an ordinary shared 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, but the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at registration. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
