Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and modify any kind of file on a selected server, including all the 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 function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. The root user can also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
You're able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package 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, a lot of system settings can be managed via an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to do 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 and custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to perform a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
