Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software that can update certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you want. You may also generate additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. 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 may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install some third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you can still perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
