Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize any kind of file on a selected server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you've chosen, 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 number of system settings can be managed from an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to make everything using 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 all of the time, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you'll pick during the registration process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
