Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software that can update particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can do anything you'd like. You may also make additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

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 3 cases - if the server features no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, yet you will also have a graphical interface available to control your online content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice when you wish to run any kind of 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 manage the content on the server, yet the root access privileges will be more restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will select during the registration process. The same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your website content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
