Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can change particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You may also make various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you purchase 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'll be able to modify any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, however you will also have a graphical interface available to manage your online content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice if you want to run any kind of software which you cannot install in an ordinary shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, yet the root access privileges will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will pick throughout the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up 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 obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content will be managed via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
