Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software which can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you would like. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at registration. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
