Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a specific server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide features full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at signup. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, but you can still do lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
