Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software which can change certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You can also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

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 comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can update each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your online content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you would like to run any software that you cannot set up in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on your server, however, the root access rights are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, however you can still perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
