If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you'll be able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You can take care of your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan which you've chosen, 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 managed from an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to do everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any kind of system or custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of website hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The last VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server is limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to control 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 software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
