Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change any kind of file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on your server. The root-level access function gives you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, but you can still perform a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
