Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify any file on a particular server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create various 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 specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You're able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package that you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled via an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any kind of system or custom content on it all of the time, which makes this type of hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you'll select during the signup process. The same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your website content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
