Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify every file on a selected server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do all the aforementioned things. The root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will pick during the signup process. The very same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content will be managed through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with restricted root access.
