Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software which can change certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually 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 in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. With no 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 will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
