Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software which can modify certain 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 aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You can also generate other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with limited root access.
