Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change any file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You are able to control your new VPS servers at the root level regardless of the package which you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed from a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you'll have to make everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS plus any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any app that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we offer, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you are unable to do with a shared hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You'll be able to order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your websites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control over the server. The tremendous amount of resources which you will have makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to take care of, still the root access to such a server is restricted.
