Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize every file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You will be able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the plan which you have selected, 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 large number of system settings can be managed from an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll 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 plus any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the chance to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your server needs to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with limited root access.
