Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you want. You may also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to change any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, however you will also have a graphical interface you can use to control your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you need to run any kind of software that you are unable to install in an ordinary shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options and any site content which you create or upload, while if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS which you have selected during the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you are able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
