When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and change any file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you want to run.

If you obtain a VPS servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no web hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to modify any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, yet you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice if you want to run any software which you cannot install in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to take care of the content on your server, yet the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting package, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you will still be able to do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
