Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update every file on a specific server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You will be able to control your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan that you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be managed from an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to do everything through a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS plus any system or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll choose throughout the signup process. The same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
