Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change every file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know 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 which you have 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, a number of system settings can be managed from a user-friendly web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything through a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers that we provide, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control of the machine. The significant amount of resources which you will get makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to manage, still the root access to such a machine is limited.
