Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software which can change specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really 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 manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose during the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the possibility to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your site content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
