Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify each file on a specific server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also make various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features 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 any 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, still you will also have a graphical interface available to control your world wide web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice if you want to run any software which you are unable to install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to manage the content on the server, but the root access rights are more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you select 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 will pick during the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server needs to 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 through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
