Having full root-level access means that you can access and update any file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. Your root user can also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS 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 when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update each part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you wish to run any kind of software which you can not install in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to control the content on your server, but the root access privileges will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
