Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update every file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you have the user credentials.

If you get a virtual private servers from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to modify each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, but you will also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your online content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice in case you want to run any kind of software that you are unable to install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by using SSH and to control the content on the hosting server, however, the root access rights are more limited.

Each and every dedicated server that we provide comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you will still be able to do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
