Having full root-level access means that you can access and update every file on a selected server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You will be able to control your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan which you've picked, 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 controlled via an intuitive web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to do everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS as well as any system or custom content on it all of the time, which makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you're able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control a variety of server-side options and also any site content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option which you can select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
