Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change any kind of file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. Your root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
You will be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the plan which you've selected, 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 managed through an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything via a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
