Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software that can update specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you want. You may also generate additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package that you've picked, 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 via an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything using 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 custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which 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 many others. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we provide comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you will still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
