Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software that can update specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You can also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS 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 when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can update any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, still you will also have a graphical interface available to take care of your online content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice if you want to run any software that you are unable to set up in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to control the content on the server, however, the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you will pick throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed 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 site content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
