Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update every file on a particular server, including all of the 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 effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also generate 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 server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
If you buy a virtual private servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server has no website 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 each part of the system via a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, but you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice when you want to run any software that you cannot install in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on your server, but the root access rights are more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our plans you will choose throughout the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the server has to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
