Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update each file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. The root user may also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS servers from our company, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can update any part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you will still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice in case you wish to run any kind of software which you can't set up in a standard shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, however, the root access rights will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings.
