Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software that can update specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You can also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. 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 through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You are able to control your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package which you have 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, a large number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to navigate web-based interface, while in the second, you'll have to do everything via a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS and any kind of system or custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any app that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, however you can still perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
