Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also install software that can update specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you need. You can also create other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and modify its settings and the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
