Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update each file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS

You're able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the plan which you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled through an intuitive web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to make everything via a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will 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 application which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll pick throughout the signup process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your web content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
