Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change any kind of file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. The root user may also create 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 perform some task on your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from any existing location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You'll be able to control your new VPS servers
at the root level regardless of the package that you have picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed from an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to make everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system and / or custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide features full root-level access, when 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 special requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at signup. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you can still perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
