If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you're able to both access and change any file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to perform many different things using a Secure Shell console.
