When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users that 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 create a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can update any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, but you will also have a graphical interface available to manage your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice in case you would like to run any kind of software that you cannot set up in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, however, the root access rights are more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply 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 about the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you will still be able to perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
