Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can modify certain settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you want. You may also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, when 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 regarding the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting plan, our servers will be the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you'll still be able to perform quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
