Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify any file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

If you obtain a virtual private servers from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can modify any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to control your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice if you would like to run any software which you are unable to install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on your hosting server, however, the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you choose 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 choose during the registration process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the possibility to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting 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 set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
