Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize every file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your server. The root-level access function provides you with full control over your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server features no hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can update each part of the system using a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, yet you will also have a graphical interface available to manage your web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you want to run any kind of software that you can't set up in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on your server, yet the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply includes 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 applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at registration. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, however you will still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
