You can also set up software which can update certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also create various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done via other accounts.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to control your new virtual private 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 website hosting Control Panel, or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be managed through an easy to use web-based interface, whereas in the second, you will need to do everything using 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 kind of system and custom content on it at all times, which makes this kind of hosting perfect for any app that you cannot run with a shared web hosting account because of the restricted degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, and many others.

In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over your server. The considerable amount of system resources that you will get makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any type of content that you'd like to have.
