Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify any file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as 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 package which you've selected, 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, a large number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to do everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
