Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize every file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your server. The root-level access feature will give you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
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. The very same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings as well as your website content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will receive a server with restricted root access.
