Having full root-level access means that you can access and update every file on a specific server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You are able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan which you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled through a user-friendly web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything using a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system and custom content on it all the time, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any application 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 so on. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select during the registration process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content will be managed via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
