Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update each file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who 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 a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control over your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting

You're able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level regardless of the plan that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, while in the second, you will have to do everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel choice is Hepsia, yet the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you select during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you will be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages suitable for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options as well as any web content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System which you have selected throughout the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you will be able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
