Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control over your server from almost any location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we supply provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting plan, our servers are the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at signup. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you will still be able to perform lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
