Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software which can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you'd like. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may 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 Web Hosting
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you'll select during the signup process. The same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your site content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
