Having root-level access to a server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software that can modify certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you would like. You can also create other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your website content can be managed through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
