Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize each file on a selected server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with full control over your server from any existing location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You can control your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the package which you've chosen, 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 controlled through an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any kind of system and / or custom content on it all the time, that makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you can still perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
