Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify any kind of file on a selected server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You will be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the plan which you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled from an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to make everything using a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
