Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update any kind of file on a selected server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned things. The root user can also generate 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 some task on your server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS servers
from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features 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 any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, but you'll also have a graphical interface available to control your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you wish to run any software which you cannot install in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, however, the root access rights will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our plans you will select during the signup process. The same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your site content will be managed via 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.
