Having full root-level access means that you can access and update any file on a particular server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also create other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You will be able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package which you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed via a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to make everything through a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your web content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with limited root access.
