Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update any kind of file on a selected server, in addition to all of 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 efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. Your root user may also make other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package that you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be managed through an intuitive web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to make everything through a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS and any kind of system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you will pick during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server should 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 abovementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your site content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
