Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update each 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 apps to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned things. The root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the server. The root-level access function provides you with full control over your server from any location, as long as you know 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 have 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 intuitive web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything using a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system and custom content on it at all times, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have restricted root access, but you will still be able to perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
