Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you need. You may also make various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose during the signup process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
