Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software that can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You may also make additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

In the first case, you'll be able to change any part of the system from a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, but you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to manage your world wide web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice when you would like to run any kind of software which you can't set up in a standard shared web hosting account.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans suitable for multi-media apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options and any web content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS which you have selected during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you are able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
