Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and modify any file on a specific server, which includes all 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 appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to take care of your new VPS 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 website hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled through an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to make everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS plus any system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of hosting perfect for any app 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 option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will pick throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server has to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your website content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
