Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change every file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
When you get a virtual private servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no website 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 from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make adjustments, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to manage your world wide web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice when you wish to run any software which you cannot set up in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on your hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our plans you will select throughout the signup process. The same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server has 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 abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
