Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update any file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. Your root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS servers
from our company, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no web hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to change each part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, yet you will also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you would like to run any kind of software which you can not install in a standard shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on the server, however, the root access privileges will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you'll select during the signup process. The very same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't 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 aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
