Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and change each file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your server. The root-level access function offers you full control of your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've chosen, 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, multiple system settings can be managed from a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything via a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS and any system and custom content on it all of the time, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you pick during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage various server-side options and also any site content which you create or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you can choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
