Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update every file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. Your root user may also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control over your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

When you acquire a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server features no web hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to modify each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your web content and many 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 not set up in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of the Linux dedicated hosting that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You may order the server without any web 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 control your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over your server. The considerable amount of resources which you will receive makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, yet the root access to such a machine is restricted.
