Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software that can modify specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You can also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting package, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
