Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software which can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You may also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You may 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 Hosting

You'll be able to take care of 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 devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed via an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to do everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you select throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you can update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control numerous server-side options and any site content which you create or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System which you have selected throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you'll be able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
