Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software which can change specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you want. You may also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our plans you'll choose during the registration process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, because 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 through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your site content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
