Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also install software which can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also create additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, 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 be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and customize its settings and 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, and also the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, but you can still perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
