Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software that can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
If you buy 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 during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to change each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, still you will also have a graphical interface available to manage your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice in case you wish to run any kind of software which you can not install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on your hosting server, yet the root access rights are more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
