When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and modify any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update any part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, yet you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your online content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice when you need to run any kind of software which you can't set up in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, however, the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, but you can still do quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
