Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update any kind of file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday 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 function offers you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no web hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice if you wish to run any kind of software which you cannot set up in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to control the content on your server, yet the root access rights are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, however you will still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
