If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting package, our servers are the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify 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, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you will still be able to perform a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
