Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update every file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

When you buy a virtual private servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update each part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, but you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice when you wish to run any software which you can not install in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to manage the content on your server, yet the root access privileges will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will choose throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
