Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can modify specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you want. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared web hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and change its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always set up some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at registration. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you can still do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
