Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and modify every file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You're able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan which you have picked, 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 number of system settings can be managed from a user-friendly web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, unless 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 and / or custom content on it at all times, that makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your web content will be managed via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
