Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged 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 can do anything you'd like. You can also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

Our VPS include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you'll need the server for. When you buy a VPS with no Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything using a console, unless you install some third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also include full root access, yet most of the things which are linked to your online content can be done with a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install various different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. When you obtain your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you choose throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you are able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans suitable for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options and also any web content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System which you've selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
