Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also set up software that can modify particular settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can do anything you would like. You can also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're 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 will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've chosen at registration. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
