Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also set up software which can update specific settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You can also create various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do through 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 Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we provide provides you with 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 about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the perfect solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
