Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize each file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
When you obtain a virtual private servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with 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 change any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, still you will also have a graphical interface available to manage your web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice in case you would like to run any kind of software which you can not set up in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to control the content on your server, but the root access rights will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. The same is valid if you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your web content will be managed through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with limited root access.
