If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you will be able to both access and modify any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no web hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can modify each part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, however you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice if you would like to run any kind of software that you can not set up in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on the hosting server, however, the root access rights will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your site content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
