Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update each file on a particular server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from almost any location, given that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If 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 will select during the signup process. Exactly the same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
