If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you're able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

You can control your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan which you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed via a user-friendly web-based interface, while in the second, you'll need to make everything via a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and / or custom content on it all of the time, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others. The last VPS Control Panel alternative is Hepsia, however the root access to your server is restricted.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of the dedicated servers which we supply, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do using a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You will be able to order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you install a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control over the machine. The significant amount of resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated packages the best choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, still the root access to such a machine will be limited.
