Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a particular server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
You are able to manage your new VPS servers at the root level whatever the plan that you've picked, 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, multiple system settings can be controlled via an easy to work with web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will have to do everything through a console, unless you decide to install a Control Panel yourself. Either way, you'll have full control over the VPS and any system and / or custom content on it all the time, that makes this kind of website hosting perfect for any app that you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and so on. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, however the root access to your server will be limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you can update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options and also any web content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you are able to select on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
