Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You may also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can modify each part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice if you wish to run any kind of software that you can't install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to take care of the content on the server, however, the root access rights will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you'll pick during the registration process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
