Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software which can change particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You may also make other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server has no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can change any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface available to take care of your web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice in case you would like to run any software that you are unable to set up in an ordinary shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on your hosting server, but the root access rights will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You will be able to order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control over the server. The huge amount of system resources that you'll have makes our dedicated packages 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 easier to maintain, however the root access to such a machine is limited.
