If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things as well as to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

You're able to manage your new virtual private servers at the root level whatever the package that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or devoid of Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be controlled via an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to make everything using a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS as well as any system and custom content on it all the time, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any application which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited level of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you can still perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
