Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software which can update certain settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you want. You may also make various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do 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 manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you order a VPS servers
from us, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to change each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your online 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 cannot set up in a regular shared web 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 the hosting server, however, the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we offer comes with full root-level access, if 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 specific requirements with regard to the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
