Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software which can modify particular settings on your server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you'd like. You may also create various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You can control your new VPS servers
at the root level whatever the plan which you have picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed through an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything via a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS plus any system or custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our plans you'll select throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your website content will be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
