Having full root-level access means that you can access and modify every file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. The root user may also create 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 perform a particular task on the server. The root-level access feature offers 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 Hosting
If you acquire a virtual private servers from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can change any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make changes, but you'll also have a graphical interface you can use to control your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice if you need to run any kind of software which you can not install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to take care of the content on the hosting server, but the root access rights are more restricted.

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you choose throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages suitable for multi-media apps with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options as well as any website content which you create or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you are able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
