If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to control your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you've picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed through an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will need to do everything via a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS and any system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of web hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree 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 is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
