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 specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you can do anything you would like. You can also make other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

If you acquire a virtual private servers from us, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with 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 modify each part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, however you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to control your online 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 are unable to install in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on your server, but the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content will be managed via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
