If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and modify any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package that you've chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled through an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS as well as any system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. 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 Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which package you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you can update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages suitable for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options and any site content which you create or upload, whereas if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the OS that you have chosen during the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you will be able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
