When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to manage your new virtual private 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 devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be managed via an intuitive web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to do everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any kind of system and custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you've selected at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
