Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify each file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also make 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 perform some task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You can take care of your new VPS servers
at the root level regardless of 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 any Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be managed from a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything through a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any system or custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application that you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at registration. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
