Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a selected server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package which you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed from an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to make everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you will still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
