If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you can both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

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 has no web hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to modify any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, however you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice when you need to run any software which you are unable to install 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 server, yet the root access privileges are more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting plan, our servers are the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at registration. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you can still do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
