Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software that can update particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You're able to take care of your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan that you've 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, a lot of system settings can be managed via a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you'll have to do 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 kind of system and / or custom content on it at all times, that makes this type of website hosting perfect for any application that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting package, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, whereas 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. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install some third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, however you'll still be able to perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
