Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can modify certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you'd like. You may also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You're able to control your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed through an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS and any kind of system and / or custom content on it at all times, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have limited root access, however you'll still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
