Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software which can modify specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you want. You may also create other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to perform lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
