Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change any 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 apps in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. The root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server has 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 change any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, however you'll also have a graphical interface available to control your online content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans an excellent choice when you need to run any software that you cannot set up in a regular 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 your hosting server, yet the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated servers that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You will be able to order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control over your server. The significant amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to take care of, yet the root access to such a machine is limited.
