Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software which can update specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You may also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you will select during the signup process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the hosting server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with limited root access.
