Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize every file on a specific server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control over your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan which 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, many system settings can be controlled from an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to do everything through a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system and custom content on it all of the time, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you are able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options as well as any web content that you create or upload, while if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS that you've chosen throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option which you're able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
