Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also install software that can modify particular settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you need. You can also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you'll select during the registration process. The very same is valid when you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since 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 from a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with limited root access.
