Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can change particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using 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 Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we offer features 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 special requirements about the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up some third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've chosen at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
