Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also set up software which can modify certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you need. You can also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, 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 that you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

When you purchase a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to change each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, still you will also have a graphical interface available to manage your online content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a great choice in case you need to run any software that you cannot set up in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by using SSH and to control the content on the server, however, the root access rights will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers are the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you can still perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
