Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software that can update particular settings on the server throughout the, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you need. You can also generate various other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you'll select throughout the signup process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and apps which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content will be managed through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
