Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and change any file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no web hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to change any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, however you will also have a graphical interface available to control your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you need to run any kind of software that you are unable to install in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to take care of the content on the server, however, the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, because 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, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
