Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and modify every file on a specific server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the package which you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed via an intuitive 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'll have full control over the VPS plus any system or custom content on it all the time, that makes this kind of hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
