Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can update particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You may also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to update each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, still you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your world wide web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice in case you need to run any kind of software which you cannot set up in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on your hosting server, yet the root access rights are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at registration. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still perform quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
