Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change each file on a specific 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 through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control of your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You're able to control your new VPS servers
at the root level whatever the plan that you have picked, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, a lot of system settings can be controlled via an easy to use web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to make everything via a console, until you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and / or custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of hosting perfect for any app which you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
