Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You may also install software that can change certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You may also generate additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. 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 that you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting plan, our servers are the optimal 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 using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you can still do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
