Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update any file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS servers from us, 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 will be able to change each part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to control your web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice if you wish to run any software that you are unable to install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, but the root access rights will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you select during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options and any site content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the OS that you have selected throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option which you're able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
