Having full root-level access means that you can access and change any file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the package which you have selected, 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, multiple system settings can be managed via an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything using a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS and any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application that you cannot 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 last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you will be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options as well as any web content that you create or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you've selected throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you're able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
