Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can modify specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're 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 do anything you need. You can also generate additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will select during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings and your web content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
