Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize any file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan that you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled through an intuitive web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will choose during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content will be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
