Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize 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 necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function gives you full control over your server from any existing location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements about the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have selected at signup. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
