Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and customize every file on a selected server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. The root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You will be able to manage 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 web hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled through an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything through 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 system and / or custom content on it all the time, that makes this kind of hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. The very same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
