Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update each file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

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 to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface available to take care of your web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice when you need to run any kind of software which you cannot install in an ordinary shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you choose throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options as well as any site content which you create or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System which you've selected during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you will be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
