If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You can take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you have chosen, 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, multiple system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to do everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS in addition to any system or custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you can still perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
