Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can update specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you want. You can also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can 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

If you buy a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server has no web hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice when you want to run any software that you are unable to install in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on the server, but the root access rights are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options as well as any web content that you generate or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS that you have chosen during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you are able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
