Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize any file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control over your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.

If you get a virtual private servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can modify each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, yet you will also have a graphical interface you can use to take care of your online content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you need to run any software which you are unable to set up in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by using SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, however, the root access privileges will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like 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 web hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install some third-party 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'll have restricted root access, however you will still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
