Having full root-level access means that you can access and update any file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control of your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

If you purchase a virtual private servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no 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 adjustments, still you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your online content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice in case you wish to run any software which you cannot set up in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on the server, yet the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will select during the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
