Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize every file on a particular server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You're able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, multiple system settings can be managed via a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to do everything using a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and custom content on it all of the time, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers are the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've chosen at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
