Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You may also create various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we provide features 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 applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, however you'll still be able to perform many different things through a Secure Shell console.
