Having full root-level access means that you can access and update each file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can change each part of the system with a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, but you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your world wide web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice in case you would like to run any kind of software that you can not set up in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on your server, but the root access privileges are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server with no website hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control of your machine. The considerable amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans the perfect choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, yet the root access to such a machine is restricted.
