If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you will be able to both access and update any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you buy a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can change each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to manage your world wide web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice when you need to run any software that you can not set up in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on the hosting server, yet the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll pick during the registration process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your website content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
