Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update any kind of file on a particular server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each 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'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you will still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
