Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change each file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on the server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice when you need to run any kind of software which you cannot set up in a standard shared web hosting account.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers are the optimal solution.
