Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software that can update specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You can also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you buy a VPS servers
from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no website 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 each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, still you will also have a graphical interface accessible to control your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice when you need to run any kind of software that you can't install in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, however, the root access rights are more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you will choose during the registration process. The same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as 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 acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
