Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize every file on a specific server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be managed from an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything using a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any application that you can't 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 alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers will be the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
