Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and modify every file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. The root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
You'll be able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you have selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything via a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will 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 hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply includes 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 applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software 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 on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
