Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can change specific settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're 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'd like. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans include different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to select the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. If you get a VPS without Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you'll take care of everything from a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be done via a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you obtain the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your website content will be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
