Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software that can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You can also create various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - day-to-day 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 which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will select during the registration process. The very same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the chance to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server has to be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your website content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
