Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update any file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
You will be able to take care of your new virtual private servers
at the root level whatever 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, a number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to do everything using a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS plus any system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you get one of the dedicated hosting services
that we offer, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of the machine. The tremendous amount of resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to manage, yet the root access to such a machine is restricted.
