Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update any kind of file on a selected 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 apps to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You're able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled via an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to make everything via a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system or custom content on it at all times, that 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, etc. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
