Full Root-level Access
Learn about what precisely ‘full root-level access’ means, what benefits you'll have and ways to utilize them to enhance your server.
Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update each file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
You're able to manage your new virtual private servers
at the root level whatever the plan which you've selected, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, or without any Control Panel at all. In the first case, a number of system settings can be managed through an intuitive web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll need to make everything via a console, until you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any kind of system or custom content on it all the time, that makes this type of web hosting perfect for any application that you can't run with a shared web hosting account due to the restricted level 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 restricted.
