Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize every file on a selected server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You'll be able to manage your new VPS servers
at the root level whatever 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 without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled from an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to do everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any kind of system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every 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 want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use 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 with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, however you will still be able to perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
