Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software which can change specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can do anything you'd like. You can also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no website hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to modify each part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, but you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice when you need to run any software which you are unable to set up in an ordinary shared website 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 the server, however, the root access rights are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will select throughout the signup process. The same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your website content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
