Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software which can modify certain settings on the server throughout the, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you can do anything you want. You may also create various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you select 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 pick throughout the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers give you the option to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned choices is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your web content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with limited root access.
