Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a particular server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also make other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature gives you full control over your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers will be the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can always install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
