Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also set up software which can update certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you'd like. You may also generate additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You're able to take care of your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the package that you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, a large number of system settings can be controlled from an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to make everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS and any system or custom content on it at all times, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
