Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize every file on a selected server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You will be able to control your new VPS 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 Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be managed via an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to do everything using a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

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